Coos Bay Ban the Bag

Active | December 01 2018

Plastic Pollution

Pass a Sustainable Shopping Ordinance to reduce the number of plastic bags used in Coos Bay.

2018 was the year of plastic bag ordinances in Oregon. That momentum spurred the Coos Bay Chapter to launch a Ban the Bag campaign after years of running a Bring the Bag program. Building on years of outreach, the Chapter is now working with City Council and City Staff to ramp up outreach efforts and develop a local ordinance. 

Plastic Pollution

Rise Above Plastics is designed to eliminate the impacts of plastics in the marine environment by raising awareness about the dangers of plastic pollution and by advocating for a reduction of single-use plastics and the recycling of all plastics.
